Surpise your students with a cupcake lesson which has an important message.
Read about Michael Sokol, who volunteers on Rosh Hashanah to blow shofar for an elderly couple
unable to attend services. By helping to bring joy to their holiday, Michael enhances
his own celebration as well. After sampling cupcakes without frosting, students will explore
the “cake” and the “frosting” of holiday observance and think about the ways in
which they can enhance the holidays for themselves and others. They will also consider
the ways in which celebrating with other people is an essential part of the holiday.
